Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • THE ROAD I'M ON chronicles Dion's recordings for Columbia Records in the 1960s--after he left Laurie Records in 1962 and before he returned to Laurie in 1968.

  • Producers: Robert Mersey, Tom Wilson, Scott Kempner, Frank Funaro, Dion DiMucci.
  • Compilation producer: Al Quaglieri.
  • Engineers include: Jim Ball.
  • Principally recorded between 1962 and 1968. Includes liner notes by David Hinckley and Mitchell Cohen.
  • Audio Mixer: Vic Anesini.
  • Liner Note Author: David Hinckley.
  • Photographer: Don Hunstein.
  • THE ROAD I'M ON fills in an intriguing missing chapter in music history--the years between Dion's last doo-wop hit in 1963 and his comeback with 1968's "Abraham, Martin And John." It's often assumed that the Wanderer turned his back on music in the interim. In fact, he was just trying out different kinds, including blues shuffles and folk ballads.
  • Disc 1 of THE ROAD I'M ON includes the expected doo-wop vocalizing, fingersnaps and handclaps of songs like "Donna The Prima Donna" and "Ruby Baby," along with hints of the radical direction in which Dion was heading. This path is dotted with a sophisticated pop arrangement of a Woody Guthrie song, "900 Miles," and a beautiful, Bob Dylanesque ballad, "The Road I'm On (Gloria)." Disc 2 consists largely of B-sides and previously-unreleased tracks, and shows off a fascinating musical wanderlust. Dion had great instincts for the music of the '60s, and he had a record label, Columbia, that didn't seem to know what to do with him. He could do a Byrdsy Dylan cover like "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue" as easily as a blues shuffle ("You Can't Judge A Book By The Cover") or a great pop song ("My Love"); the latter two, though, remained unreleased until this 1997 collection.
Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (2/21-2/28/97, p.126) - "...this revealing set finds the pride of the Bronx tackling blues, rock & roll, and folk with the same brio he brought to the earlier doo-wop classics he made with his vocal group, the Belmonts." - Rating: A-
